By using stories and videos showing familiar PBS KIDS characters working through their own mad feelings, you can provide strategies that children can build on as they grow and learn and develop the self-control needed to handle frustrating situations appropriately.

In this set of resources, we will focus on how you can help children work on developing self-control, listening carefully and using strategies to calm down when they feel mad.

Watch the videos about Mad Feelings and think about how you could use them as part of the classroom activity or throughout the year as children develop strategies for dealing with mad feelings. 

Explore the topic of Mad Feelings in your classroom using the Teacher Tips and Classroom Activity.

Whether the disappointment comes from unmet expectations at a birthday party or from another disappointment such as not getting a favorite snack at the grocery store or missing out on play time with a friend due to illness, it is important that parents and teachers help children learn how to cope with disappointment. By using resources from PBS KIDS and Daniel Tiger's Neigborhood, parents and teachers can introduce the topic with friendly and familiar characters and engage children in talking about and identifying the feeling of disappointment.

In this set of resources, we will focus on how you can help children work on recognizing and naming the feeling of disappointment, expressing that feeling appropriately and finding ways to turn that feeling into something good.

Watch the videos about Disappointment and think about how you could use them as a part of the classroom activity or throughout the year as children experience and learn to cope with disappointments.
